16 years

Well 16 years ago this firey, long legged, champagne white marking on her beautiful face, sorrel filly came into my life and forever changed it! I have so many memories of the two of us, some good, bad and well just plain ugly too! From halter training, showing, riding, ground driving, to vets and shots!! Aaaahhhh the stories I could tell. But I won't. Let's just say they include black and blues and sailing through the air hollering profanities and landing in horrible positions, tears, blood, sweat, all from me of course, but I wouldn't change it and I wouldn't sell this wonderful mare that has been mine from the day she was born for any price. I love her like my own kid. I can't believe it's been 16 years already. Even though things didn't turn out like I planned with her, I still have her and still have plenty of time to do more things then I thought, I guess it's not in my timing, but that of my Creators and His time. I pray it comes soon!!
I take a picture of her every year on her birthday and either make horse cookies or give her carrots. I got a few pictures of her today but it's a wet dreary day, and she was not going to cooperate, and TO was being the typical pest, then the batteries in my camera died and now I have to charge them. Ugh. So pardon the lack luster of the pictures. The weather has been anything but nice the past few days or so. Very depressing. But...

Happy Birthday Abby!!
This is the best shot I got before the camera died. TO decided to eat her hay pile, and she was irritated  by that. Haha see her nose!!
This was last summer. Happy, and taking a snooze. Lazy summer day.
